Tea Party Patriots in Colorado rally opposition to President Obama’s liberal Supreme Court nominee

Members of Tea Party Patriots Field Team made a trip to the Centennial State last week, where they braved inclement weather and recruited local tea partyers to petition Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) to reverse course and reject President Obama’s liberal, anti-Second-Amendment Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland. “Because he is thoughtful, thorough, and well-respected across the political spectrum, obstructing a fair process, much less refusing to meet with him, makes no sense,” Sen. Bennet said in a statement in April after meeting with the nominee. But the Senate is operating exactly within its constitutional authority to decline ...

Call to thank your senators for giving us a voice in the direction of the Supreme Court!

President Obama is trying to bully the Senate into confirming Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court as part of his plan to stack the Court with a liberal majority that will undermine our most cherished rights. Merrick Garland would be the fifth vote on the Supreme Court to gut our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms and empower unaccountable bureaucrats at agencies like the IRS and EPA – he must be stopped! Even the liberal New York Times admits a Supreme Court with Merrick Garland would be “the most liberal in decades.” Fortunately, Senate Republicans, led by Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), are holding firm and ...

Tea Party Patriots in New Hampshire rally opposition to President Obama’s liberal Supreme Court nominee

Members of Tea Party Patriots Field Team made a trip to the Granite State last week, where they recruited local tea partyers to urge Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) to preserve former Justice Antonin Scalia’s legacy on the Supreme Court and continue rejecting President Obama’s liberal, anti-Second-Amendment Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland. "Empowered with a lifetime appointment, the next Supreme Court justice will likely have a significant impact on the court and the people of our country for years,” Sen.

Tell us: Will you commit to being a Supreme Court defender?

President Obama Wednesday announced his Supreme Court nominee: D.C. Circuit Judge Merrick Garland, who was once considered for a cabinet position in the Obama administration and whose record on the bench is anything but moderate and not even remotely conservative. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), however, is holding fast to his promise that the Senate will not confirm or even consider President Obama’s nominee in a political environment so deeply divided and so close to the November elections. But we need to be doing more. Will you commit to helping us defend the Constitution against President Obama’s liberal ...

Join us in the Constitutional Battle of Our Lifetime

Our beloved American freedoms have never been more at risk. We face not only a historic presidential election this year, but also a potentially radical liberal justice if President Obama ignores precedent and pushes through his nominee. After the loss of Justice Antonin Scalia, the Supreme Court hangs in the balance, and it’s up to us to hold Senate Republicans accountable as they refuse to cave to President Obama's demands. As National Review points out, the SCOTUS fight isn’t about one justice—it’s about America’s future on a dozen political issues. Help us in the fight by flooding the Senate with petitions, phone calls and ...
